Fibronectin, ratCatalog number: FI24941-0.1
This antibody may be used to identify fibronectin during wound healing, during tumour progression, and tumour invasion respectively. Fibronectins are glycoproteins, which occur as dimers of two 200 kDa subunits. They have binding domains for bacterial proteins, collagens, heparin-like molecules and fibrin. Cellular fibronectin is widely distributed in the stroma of malignant tumours. Rat fibronectin 100%, rat collagen type I, II, III, IV and V <0.1%, rat elastin <0.1% (RIA at 1:5000 dilution).
Immunogen: Purified fibronectin from rat plasma
Affinity purified antibody lyophilized from phosphate buffered solution (non-sterile). Contains antimycotic substance, but no BSA and sodium azide! Reconstitute with 0.5 ml of sterile water and store aliquots at -20°C. For further dilution use appropriate antibody diluent, e.g. Art. No. PU002 for IHC.

Secondary Reagents: Anti-rabbit IgG-conjugates, e.g. anti-rabbit IgG:FITC (Art. No. FI-1000) or anti-rabbit IgG:DyLight488 (Art. No. DI-1488).
Concentration: app. 1 mg/ml
Species Reactivity: Rat
IHC(P), IFA, ELISA, RIA, IB (WB)
Incubation Time: IHC(P) 60 min at RT or 2-8°C over night
Working Concentration: (purified, lyophilized) IFA ? 1:80, IHC(P) ? 1:1000, ELISA ? 1:200 (OD ? 500)
Pre-Treatment: After de-waxing the tissue slices they are treated with 0.2% hyaluronidase (app. 300 U/mg e.g. Art. No. HYA02-50) in TBS 15 min at 37°C. There after non-specific binding is blocked by blocking serum or 3% BSA in TBS. For peroxidase systems blocking with 1% peroxide solution in TBS for 30 min at RT is recommended.
Positive Control: Rat skin
